Too often we "medicalize" the caregiving experience or turn it into a series of steps and processes. Caregiving is about individuals and their interrelationships over time and through the course of illness and recovery (or death) – our articles and interactive features will serve to guide caregivers through that journey.

This workbook enables you to collect vital information and use it to save time when visiting with your loved one's doctor or other advisor. You do NOT store information on a computer -- you keep it with you at all times so it remains secure and private.
